By DAPO AKINREFON
IKEJA - Lagos State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has faulted the trip by the 57 chairmen and officials of local government and local council development areas in the state to the United Kingdom, describing it as 'mere leisure trip.'
State chairman of PDP, Captain Tunji Shelle (rtd), said: 'We view this recent misplaced trip of the council chairmen to the UK as insensitive and absurd, especially as the trip must have cost the state a lot m ore than what the striking doctors are demanding for consolation, pending the final settlement of their grievances.'
Shelle added: 'How can anyone rationalise the trip at this period, when the chairmen should been monitoring how the councils' health facilities have been activated to ameliorate the pains of the ongoing strike by doctors?'
